Senator for Bob Krueger He said the com mission would be come the focal point for the bal comprehen sive and environ mentallysensitive development of the valuable resources found in the Gulf region as Bentsen had The manage ment system I am proposing will al low for the sustainable economic develop ment of the Gulf Krueger For too we have been told that economic development and environmental protection are This legislation makes clear that these interests can and must work Krueger The commission will be made up of var ious state and federal officials from groups like the Environmental Protection the Army Corps of and representatives from the houses and sen ates of the Gulf coast according to Rich the Senators special Gold said the legislation does not add personnel or office space since those on the commission will simply add service on the commission to existing responsibilities and the commission will not have its own The legislation will also establish a Gulf of Mexico program in the EPA which will be responsible for the day to day environ mental management of the gulf and will do the firstever study of environmental quality in the according to Although the
